A little advice and guidance needed.
Some years ago our neibour spoke with us stating that a builder she knew stated the chimney needed re-pointing and offered to go halfs with us to keep cost down which we did however only half the chimney ( Our half ) was done we discovered that whilst she gave him the go ahead she chose not to have her side done which was just crazy.
skip to present day and I had a builder friend doing some ridge repair work on our roof and he asked me to loan him my phone and he proceeded to take pictures of the chimney stack he then informed us that the chimney as it stands is unsafe and ready for a good gust of wind as due to the fact that next door have not had their side of the chimney re pointed it has affected the stability of the stack.
He has given me a really good quote for the work which I'm happy to pay but not for doing her side.
I need to chat with the neibour sharpish on this however should she decline to pay her share and the stack does come down where do I stand as I will have given her the opportunity to rectify this now in advance.
How to go about this??
